Founded by Paul Boutinot in 2004, Waterkloof is a family-owned, organic, biodynamic and WWF Biodiversity Champion farm perched high up on the windswept Schapenberg, overlooking False Bay and The Atlantic Ocean. Circumstance Sauvignon Blanc is often described as The Pouilly Fumé of Stellenbosch. Stunning! Crushed laurel on the nose with more than a nuance of residual seaside salt. This has a big and textured palate with stone fruit and fennel hints – it is rich and minerally, showing even a slight rocky quality about it. As bracing as the wind through the vines at Waterkloof. Ideal with fresh oysters or fresh crayfish on the grill. Great with a goat’s cheese too.
